    Hi guys,

    So I'm getting to that point where I'm heavily considering blowing the rest of the money I'm ever going to earn on a Grand Maximus.

    I have both Fort and Brave with boxes so its kinda mean not to complete the family so to speak.

    So i just need a little advice......

    How much should i be paying for a loose and how much for a boxed.

    They're going on ebay MIB unused for around the $2000 mark at auction and buy it now at $3000

    What did you guys pay.

    And one more magical question, is anyone in need of some extra cash?

    if anyone would like to part with their grand max i would be looking for one that is complete with no yellowing or damage.

    MIB preferred i guess but loose might save my wallet a little if its an option and reprolabels are just fine.

    Don't think this should really be in the wanted section as I'm not on the super hunt just yet, just seeing if there are any options out there for me rather than buying from a scalper. if its right then firm deals can be made

    oh i live in Australia so shipping and paypal is a requirement

    hope you guys can help me.

    its the holy grail.

    cheers

    Linton

    I put a bid on one (1500) that was on ebay

    it went for 2.4k


    too rich for my blood when about 1k can get a original fort max and a brave max together

    sad thing is you cant get a fort boxed for even close to what you paid for grand. you'll make a killing if you ever sell him

    so cobra, if you're not a huge fan of the mould, do you have him because you're a completist or you scored a bargain? or just dont need more than one of him?

    pity, i imagine it'd be a real site. now technically doesn't that mean you don't have a complete headmasters line if you don't have a fort max?
